Spent the day exploring downtown Oakland for the first time – it was a mixture of a lot of old and a lot of new.  Stopped by a cute cafe called Tierra Mia – definitely going back again – had such a cool vibe and their Vanilla Honey Tea Latte was so delish.  Decided to sport one of my favorite jackets with today’s outfit – the details, the shape and color all make it so versatile.  I pair it w ripped jeans on casual days, and sometimes wear it a lacy dress to add a little edge.  Here, I went for a more classy look.

OOTD: Prélude’s Organic Cotton Nuisette by Day

Prélude’s Nuisette is truly a wardrobe essential for all women.  Not only is it versatile for day- and night-wear, but also, its simple design is very form flattering and can easily be styled into several cute looks.  Also, thanks to the use of GOTS certified cotton that’s almost twice as thick as typical sleepwear, the cotton is durable, and will become softer with every wash (hallelujah!).

Most importantly, though, Prélude’s Nuisette is made of 100% organic cotton (made in USA).  This means that the cotton is grown in a way that uses methods and materials that lessen the impact on our environment.  Organic cotton production also uses less pesticides, insecticides, Genetically Modified Organisms and other toxins that are harmful for the wildlife eco-systems, the farmers and workers and us, the consumers.

Luckily for us, we can change what we wear and choose more sustainable options.  Please take the opportunity to support a pioneer in the organic cotton movement –  See the link below and pre-order Prélude here!

Living Well from Inside Out

kim good 01Since I’ve started working full-time again, I’ve definitely realized a change in my lifestyle.  Instead of waking up and making my daily green smoothie, I’ve been commuting an hour to work.  In place of my home-cooked healthy lunches, I’ve been taking advantage of catered lunches at work – carbs and all.  I used to work out 5-6 days a week and now, I’m trending closer to 2 days a week.  Part of me knows that this is only temporary since I’m still getting settled into a different schedule.  However, this doesn’t mean that I haven’t noticed the effects this change has been on my body, skin and physical and mental health.  Lately, I’ve been feeling fatigue, my skin hasn’t been as good and I haven’t been able to focus as well at work.  Luckily for YOU and me, this weekend POPSUGAR and Simple Skin Care is hosting an event focused on Living Well from Inside Out.  They’ll be promoting yoga, de-stressing exercises, healthy recipes and be giving out free goodies.  How fabulous is that?!

To attend is easy, just check out the details below and click on the link to register.  Feel free to message me with any questions and all comments about the event are welcome!!  Would love to hear feedback.  =)

I’ve been eyeing some clunky platform sandals to pair with my summer outfits.   These Jeffrey Campbell’s help me pull together a perfect tropical look.
